NYC-based Alex Winston, born in the Motown-rich city of Detroit, has already opened for fellow Detroiter/crazed rocker Ted Nugent, so there’s more to her offbeat pop tunes and Kate Bush-esque voice than meets the eye. She’s already giving the likes of Florence and the Machine a run for her money in the UK, and turned plenty of heads (and ears) when she played CMJ to a sold-out room at her debut performance this fall.

Winston’s upcoming mini LP, Sister Wife, produced by NYC’s The Knocks as well as London’s Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine), is out March 8th on HeavyRoc.

You can catch Alex Winston live this Sunday, January 9th at Public Assembly in Williamsburg, Brooklyn when she kicks off the inaugural Communion night with a 10pm show. Brooklyn’s latest party was inspired by the legendary UK club night “Communion”, which has staged the likes of acts from Suede to Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons and Damien Rice. Not to be missed.
